“Oldfashioned but charming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

The Gdynia Aquarium gives a somewhat old impression, both from the building itself and the way to exhibit the fishes and natural history objects. Still, it is a charming and interesting place, with unusial species like a carnivore turtle (!) and with a underwater landscape model of the Baltic Sea (topographic) that gave us a few surprises even concerning our native coasts (Norwegian and Swedish). Especially on a rainy day it is a great place to bring your kids.

“Overrated...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

It's an ok place, but rather overrated. The line to get in is long, and it's crowded inside. If you've been to any other aquariums, you've most likely been to one better than this.

“Good entertainment for the entire family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Can't really compete with aquariums in other countries but still one og Gdynia's highlights. Not big and sometimes crowdy - in high season make sure to come early in order to avoid a long queue to the entrance! But still, exotic and local fish species, reptiles, water tanks allowing you to pet a fish make for a nice time for the entire family. Small kids are likely to be more enthousiastic than adults :)
